Fill out a PDF file with PDF-Exchange Viewer

Here is a little tool I didn’t know about.

Hat Tip Lifehacker

Windows only: Freeware application PDF-XChange Viewer is a quick PDF reader that lets you perform all kinds of useful PDF editing tasks.

Among all of the features (and it is rich with them), PDF-XChange Viewer’s killer feature is the Typewriter editing mode, which lets you overlay text anywhere on a PDF?a feature that’s invaluable for filling out forms that aren’t actually made to work as PDF forms (we’ve all been there). Add to that thumbnail previews, a nice tabbed interface, bookmarks, and sticky notes, and PDF-XChange Viewer is a formidable PDF tool. It may not be poised to replace Foxit Reader, but if you fill out a lot of PDFs, it’s definitely worth a place in your Programs folder.

    Sounds good. I would check it out and I’ll give a response here. The best pdf editor I used so far is PDFfiller. We’ll see how is that one works.
